The 2019 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award

What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

We believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions.

That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities.

Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us.

So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do.

We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of ­its people.

Subaru Loves to Care Blanket Delivery  –  Montgomery Cancer Center B

I want to sincerely thank Montgomery Subaru for the kind donations of blankets for use by the patients at the Montgomery Cancer Center. Donations like these provide an opportunity for a volunteer to interact and provide comfort and encouragement to a patient. Thank you for your faithfulness. It is donations like these that help Montgomery Cancer Center and our volunteers to continue our mission of supporting cancer patients in Central Alabama. Their generosity is so important to a patient's treatment and time here at the Montgomery Cancer.


Subaru Loves to Care Blanket Delivery  –  Katherine F

On June 10, 2019, the Alabama Gulf Coast Chapter and Montgomery Subaru delivered messages of hope and 80 blankets to the Montgomery Cancer Center! I arrived at the Montgomery Cancer Center and met my Subaru contact, Megan, her mother, Karen, and a Subaru Ambassador, Helen. Nita, the Patient Relations Coordinator was telling us how in awe she is at just how many patients they get in there each day. She said they have 50 chemo chairs and many times they are all full. After snapping a picture, Nita graciously gave us a tour of the facility. It is extremely nice, complete with a coffee shop and a pharmacy. When we walked to the center of the building, we saw a bell set up next to a giant ribbon cut out. Pasted on the cut out were ribbons of all different colors to represent all of the different cancer survivors who rang that bell when they finish their chemo treatment! That was my favorite part of this visit, to see all of those ribbons whether they were blue, orange, pink etc; all of them representing survivors of such a terrible disease that we are all fighting to cure. Nita let us know that the blankets would be distributed by patient educators to new patients to make them feel comforted and welcome. Many thanks to everyone at Montgomery Subaru and Montgomery Cancer Center. We are grateful to be able to use this partnership with Subaru and the Montgomery Cancer Center to be able to spread the resources of LLS throughout more areas of Alabama! Thank you for this memorable day spreading love and hope to cancer patients and sharing our mission.


Share the Love helps save homeless pets  –  Lea T

On April 5, 2019, John and Megan Danielson came to our Shelter and presented us a check for $13,092.68! The funds were from the Share the Love event and we are so indebted to Montgomery Subaru for this donation. These funds saved hundreds of lives with spaying/neutering and medical treatment. We love partnering with Montgomery Subaru and it has been a tremendous gift for the homeless animals at the the Montgomery Humane Society.

Montgomery Subaru Supports CrimeStoppers  –  Tony G

Every October, Central Alabama CrimeStoppers (CACS) holds their annual fundraising golf tournament at Robert Trent Jones in Prattville as the main source to support our annual programs. We are proud to say that this tournament was our most successful event ever and could not have been done without the support of local businesses like Montgomery Subaru. They have supported us in this sponsorship for the last three years and we look forward to a continued partnership. Plus, Montgomery Subaru personnel go above and beyond to serve on our CACS Board. CACS is a non-profit agency 100% funded by private donations/fundraising, and could not run without the support of our local community. Funds are primarily used to pay out rewards from anonymous tipsters with information about crimes committed in the community. These calls result in thousands of arrests and substantial amounts of property recovery that make a powerful and positive difference in our community.


Subaru Customers' Support Learning and Literacy  –  Allison B

This past August, Montgomery Subaru supported teachers and students in Montgomery County by partnering with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to present over 150 donated science trade books to local school libraries in the Montgomery Public Schools system.

Subaru Delivers Meals and More  –  Chacolby B

We are proud to have Montgomery Subaru serve as a Corporate Route Partner to deliver hot nutritious and delicious meals to homebound seniors in the City of Montgomery. Team Subaru delivers happy smiles and hellos as they share meals, compassion, and service to homebound seniors neighbors on the route. The volunteers help us fight hunger one senior at the time. The team at Subaru has been a great partner of MACOA as they coordinated a pet food drive to collect food for the four-legged friends of our senior clients. We could not fulfill our mission without the endless commitment of individual and corporate volunteers from Subaru who give their time and talents to serve seniors. You are the open hearts and helping hearts to keep the wheels rolling for Meals on Wheels. Thank you, Montgomery Subaru, for Sharing the Love for seniors, our Furry Friends pet food program, and for being a valuable partner of MACOA!


Stuff the Subaru for Child Protect  –  Laurel T

Child Protect, Children’s Advocacy Center serves child abuse victims of Montgomery County in Central Alabama. Our agency provides a child friendly environment where children can come tell about their alleged abuse one time to a trained forensic interviewer, thus lessening the trauma experienced by the children and their families. Last year, Child Protect conducted 628 forensic interviews where there were reports of alleged abuse, with 54% of those being sex abuse cases. Child Protect exists not only to lessen the trauma experienced by the child, but to help build a stronger case for investigators and prosecutors. Our programs include the forensic interview, post-trauma counseling, and family advocacy. All of these services are provided at no cost to the child abuse victim, their families, or the investigative agencies. Child Protect was honored to partner with Montgomery Subaru for their Stuff the Subaru drive. We received items such as snacks, juices, and bottled water to serve to our clients as well as office and cleaning supplies to help our staff. The Subaru blankets with inspirational quotes and messages to the children that visit our agency were our favorite items we received!! We are blessed to know the generous owners, staff, and customers of Montgomery Subaru and cannot thank you enough!


Feeding Hope Across Alabama  –  Teressa V

Montgomery Subaru and their Share the Love promise initiative is a tremendous partner to the mission of the Montgomery Area Food Bank in providing much-needed funds and food to assist those we serve in our 35-county service coverage area. This annual campaign resonates true caring for our local community and beyond. 2017 Share the Love Campaign raised and donated over $14,000 to the Montgomery Area Food Bank. This is equivalent to over 91,000 pounds of food/product that we were able to distribute to those we serve, which provided much-needed help to those that feel forgotten and with very little hope. Feeding someone who needs to be fed is a gift and has been made an option for many through this wonderful donation of caring for the local community by Montgomery Subaru. We are so very grateful for their partnership and all that it does for the overall benefit of those that we serve. John, Karen and Meagan Danielson and their team here locally are wonderful, caring, giving people that emanate an air of true compassion. They also support Montgomery Area Food Bank with one of our other initiatives called "Plant a Row". Planting an extra row or two in your personal garden and donating that fresh, healthy produce to benefit others.

"Paw It Forward" for River Region Humane Societies  –  Kristen H

Bluewater Broadcasting held a 3-week long promotion called "Paw It Forward" where we partnered with 6 River Region businesses, including Montgomery Subaru, to collect donations for the River Region Humane Societies, including Montgomery, Prattville/Autauga and Elmore County. We had Bluewater collection barrels posted at each sponsor location, where listeners were free to stop by at any time and drop donations for the humane societies. These items included food, treats, toys, bedding, cleaning supplies, etc. At the end of the three-week promotion, we ended up collected over 3,000 pounds of dog food, alone! This was one of our most successful promotions, and we could not have done it without the help of our sponsors!


What's better than a Subaru Outback?  –  Jerry T

Two Subaru Outbacks. I needed to replace my 4 wheel drive truck, and decided on a 2018 Outback. When I became aware of all the safety features, as well as a long list of other desirable features, I also got an Outback for my wife. We both love our Subaru Outbacks. I do landscape and wildlife photography, and the all wheel drive will take me where I need to go, and do so in comfort. Of course Katie the Border Collie loves her Outback.


My first Subaaru  –  Jerry T

I decided to replace my aging truck with a Subaru Outback, and made arrangements to do so. When I became aware of all the safety features, I wanted to get an Outback for my wife, who protested a bit about giving up her Prius. The owner at Montgomery Subaru went above and beyond to make it possible. My wife now loves her Subaru, and I like mine better every time I drive it. The dealer is there is support the Subaru in every way possible. My only regret is that I did not find out about the Subaru years ago.

Subaru Loves to Care - Meals on Wheels  –  Megan D

In an effort to make a positive impact on the health and wellness of our local community, Montgomery Subaru supported the Montgomery Area Council on Aging (MACOA) / Meals on Wheels as part of a larger Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA) initiative that month called Subaru Loves to Care. Throughout June 2017, team members from Montgomery Subaru supported their local community's health and wellness by partnering with Meals on Wheels. Montgomery Subaru asked customers to donate dry pet food to homebound seniors in need and provided a co-branded t-shirt to customers in an effort to raise awareness. Montgomery Subaru also donated $500 directly to Meals on Wheels and supported two meal delivery routes where they delivered hot meals to seniors and provided their pets' food. Over 240 pounds of dry pet food was delivered to Meals on Wheels' Furry Friends Pet Program.


Feeding Seniors & Their Furry Friends  –  Phyllis F

Montgomery's Subaru Retailer epitomizes the true meaning of Love for the community and the Promise of giving back. Partnering with Montgomery Area Council On Aging as Meals On Wheels volunteers in June, Karen and Megan Danielson packaged and delivered hot, nutritious meals to homebound seniors who welcomed their happy hellos. Clients with pets also received food for their dogs and cats as a part of the Furry Friends Program. The dealership became a collection point for those employees, customers and neighbors wanting to make pet food donations. All who donated received a free Loves to Care t-shirt and a Subaru badge. Over 240 pounds of pet food collected was delivered by General Manager John Danielson to MACOA. Yes, it's a family affair as all three of the Danielsons presented our local non-profit a $500 check to help meet local seniors' needs. And, their promise to us now as Corporate Route Partners is to continue to volunteer every month for a Meals On Wheels route. The truth be known Montgomery Subaru Loves to Help and Loves to Care. MACOA is so very grateful for our new partnership.

The American Red Cross is excited to partner with Montgomery Subaru by hosting a blood drive. Come out and donate blood on July 25th, from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.

Whatever your reason, the need is constant and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply. And you'll feel good knowing you've helped change a life. It feels great to donate! You will be someone's hero in fact, you could help save up to three lives with just one donation. Tina D.


Bark for Life 2015  –  Morgan M

Montgomery Subaru car guys! It was really cool to have a car sponsor with us this year, but especially one who supports people AND pets! It was great of y'all to jump in and check out our dog scene! So we have a few words about what your attendance means to all of us: We wanted to personally thank you for attending Bark for Life this year. Without your presence at the event we would not have been able to raise nearly $15,000 this year!! What a fantastic way to better our world. We have all been impacted in some way by cancer but we don't always know how to help. Your HELP this year will further cancer research and help families who cannot afford cancer treatment options. It will also provide transportation, housing, meals and other expenses for families traveling out of town with their loved ones for treatment. In addition, your donation allows the American Cancer Society to keep a 24 hour support hotline open for patients and their families who need someone to talk to. Your donation also went to provide wigs, hairpieces, hats, turbans and breast cancer necessities for patients. Your donation of time and money has touched the hearts of all of our staff but also many lives through the American Cancer Society. This was really amazing. We rose more this year than ever before and it was because you were there. So THANK YOU!
